Cairo: Court Postpones Baha'i Cases Again!

The two Baha'i cases before Cairo's Court of Administrative Justice, involving the twin children's request for birth certificates and the university student's dismissal & demand for ID card, got postponed again today--in a very swift session--for a ruling until 22 January 2008.

Television news court interviews:


  1. How many times will these cases have to go around until they finally fall on the desk of a judge with a spine?
    Baha'is have been denied the practice of their religion, then their basic rights by having no ID cards, and now the access to fair and timely justice from the courts. How low can the Egyptian authorities stoop to abuse people who are law-abiding citizens?
    And yet… “God forbids you not, with regards to those who fight you not for [your] faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them; for God loveth those who are just." (Qur'an, 60:8)

  2. A very appropriate quote...thank you!
